Has Anyone Ever Had This Before?

16 posts in this topic

Hi all.

Since trying to go gluten-free to stop the pain I'm in, I've been missing some of the stuff, like pasta. I found some gluten-free/wheat free pasta (made of rice flour). I got sooooooooo ill from it last night it was unbelievable. I thought maybe it was the pasta sauce (vodka sauce lots of dairy), so I tried rice bread this morning. Same results. Very ill. In pain within a half an hour.

Is it possible to be "allergic" - sensitive I guess is the better word, to other grains? I know I don't get on with soy, and rice and corn were somewhat questionable, but I've never reacted that badly before. I've never really ate a lot of gluten-free stuff, so to be fair, this was really my first major intake of anything other than white flour/wheat flour.

I feel really defeated right now as I just don't know what I'm doing. :(

Thanks for listening.

Beth

It is possible to be intolerant or allergic to other grains, but there are other options as well. First, does regular rice cause this problem - not just processed rice? Also, was it a gluten like reaction or very different? How long have you been gluten free; sometimes things can bother you for a while until you heal? Have you identified other food intolerances?

Beth-

I agree with Tiffany... and I note I am intolerant to a ton of foods, and that some foods procedure worse "noticeable" reactions in me than gluten--like turkey, corn, some dairy, coffee... Might want to check into other food intolerances. Have you tried other gluten-free breads, like corn bread or a bean flour bread? Also, you should make sure when you're cooking that your not cross contaminated your gluten-free food with utensils, pans etc that have gluten on them... Hopefully you'll figure out the culprit soon. It takes some of us a while to work out all the kinks !!

Thanks for replying. The reaction was similar to gluten (nausea,dry heaves, then pain) but more pronounced. Gluten usually just goes to blinding pain within a half an hour. Rice in and of itself could be a problem. I was told to avoid rice and soy by my nutritionist, but corn should be ok every once in a while. Except for sushi, I was never a big rice eater. Never really liked the stuff. :)

I never thought about gluten being in the pans. I use a dishwasher and figured that would blast about anything off. :) I'll check into that.

Bean flour? I've never heard of it. What kind of beans is it made out of? Is it any good?

Sorry to be asking so many questions. :)

FYI - there is also tapioca bread. That's what I eat and I like it better than rice bread.

Beth-

Questions are always welcome :) Bean flour can be made from several types of beans, some products will have a bit of a bean taste if there is much bean flour, but it leads to good texture. You can buy these flours in many places, but here is one example of Bob's Red Mill bean flour. I have this at home: http://www.bobsredmill.com/catalog/index.p...&product_ID=200

You could ck out this bread--very good texture and taste. One of the ingredients is a rice grass. Not sure if that is related to rice or just a name... THis bread is a favorite of many. http://www.glutenevolution.com/products.html

If you're using a dishwasher, I bet your okay. I just ask b/c its an issue for some. Ie:--sharing a toaster, muffin pan that has crusted on bread or something... I know there are other non-rice breads, but would need more time to look for some. I bet Abby's tapioca bread is bread. Ab--what brand do you get?

Jen - I think the brand is EnerG

I'm not saying Tapioca bread is the greatest in the world. But I've liked it better than the rice breads I've had. And it may be an option if you can't eat rice. ;)

It's easy to make mistakes, I have to edit my posts a lot because I make horrible mistakes all the time. That is pretty funny though :lol:

I'm trying to go off of all grains but am happy to consider tapioca bread, etc for some foods. I'm thinking of ordering some of the raved about Chebe bread for that reason. Nice to have a grain free option.

lol... I don't know... I think with gluten-free bread, there may be a fair amount of sense in that statement "I bet her bread is bread". some of it really isn't bread, you know. it's ground up cardboard held together by a vacuum package, unless it's actually just a porous rock. :lol:

Kinnikinnick has a very good Tapioca Bread as well, also they have a real nice English muffin which is mostly Tapioca I believe. I think there is a bit of rice flour in there as well, but when I was having trouble with rice both the bread and buns didn't bother me. I do hope that you find something that really agrees with you and tastes good too :rolleyes:

    • It sounds like you're doing great. That's amazing that your anxiety has decreased like that. You're obviously doing something really good for your health. With the other things I'm sure they will get better in time. After I gave up gluten I had a bad year but overall it got better. Things like anxiety and insomnia massively improved over time with being gluten free. However, going Paleo (which you are on your way to with the no dairy too) really helped my anxiety, as did running and self-taught acupressure. In particular I found processed gluten free foods were awful for my mood. I know you have to find your own way but I really want to encourage you to see how you feel without that if you haven't already. I also can't afford therapy but when I did have it, that helped too but just being well, gives you the chance to sort your own thoughts and feelings out even without a therapist. Good luck
    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of all grains, with the exception of rice which I reintroduced using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol
